According the a new poll released today by Public Policy Polling Senator Dean Heller leads embattled Congresswomen Shelley Berkley 47% to 45% overall and 50% to 37% with Independent voters.
-PPP’s newest Nevada Senate poll continues to find a very close race: Dean Heller leads with 47% to 45% for Shelley Berkley. A small lead for Heller is consistent with what PPP’s found over the last year in this contest- our three previous polls found him with a 1 point lead, a 3 point lead, and a tie.
Heller’s lead comes largely thanks to a 50-37 advantage with independent voters. He’s also benefiting from a more unified party base, as 86% of Republicans are committed to voting for him compared to 81% of Democrats who are with Berkley.
